click above image for more pics of the 1992 Marocco II Corvette Prototype Supercar

What you see above is the original 1992 Marocco II Corvette Prototype Supercar. What is that? We're not exactly sure. Even though the eBay seller has plenty of magazine articles pictured, information is thin on the ground for this car. It apparently went for $156,564 in 1992, which is about $123,000 above the purchase price of a Corvette at the time. What you got for your money (and still will) is an optioned up C4 with a Superblock 350 CI engine that puts out 500 hp and 500 ft-lbs. Not only does the seller claim the car does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, it does the quarter in 11.6 seconds, tops 200 mph, gets 29 mpg on the highway, and has near zero emissions. That's right, near zero -- at least, according to the hydrocarbon test it took in New Jersey in 1993. And then there's the bodywork, which, well, doesn't suit us, but it is original. And it is one of a kind. $250,000 gets you into the action.

Thanks for the tip, Mike!

      Oh, and that's an awesome hand made Paxton SN89 ball drive supercharger that's been readily available since the mid 80s. That looks like an off the shelf L98 Corvette kit that retailed for about $4000 when that car was built. Somebody got it broke off in them, bad.

      Of all the possible mash-ups, why a Corvette and an A/C Cobra?

      Ugly as a mud fence.

      That $250k bid HAS to be bogus. A better description for that car would be "1992 Corvette, runs but damaged, needs restoration." I'd give him $3k for it, not a penny more.

      This thing has kit car written all over it. $153K my ass. This guy just wants to find some sucker who will over pay for a car that might be worth $25K on a good day. I would laugh at the person who drives this thing.

      I can't wait to buy it for over $750k just to get the molds that made the body panels. The numbers look great and the engine looks good, but I would scrap the body, it looks ridiculous!

      That makes my eyes hurt--and my tummy too.

      OPtions installed by manufacturer:
      25k for a handmade supercharger
      9,500 for a dash upgrade.
      200. for Seat upgrade.

      no one said 'rush' the supercharger, no one said 'you have 24hrs to build....look, take a month, no overtime please.
      put the old dash back in.
      take $1,000 of what i save and buy me better seats.

      from the front its not bad, from the side its horrible.
      that SC is huge.
